The Bedlam Stacks

The Bedlam Stacks by Natasha Pulley (Bloomsbury, 2017); audiobook read by David Thorpe (Bolinda, 2018) Pulley’s second novel harks back thematically to her first: two nineteenth-century men from different cultures forge an unlikely friendship against a convincing backdrop of historical detail and subtly revealed magic realism. Slow-moving yet engaging, albeit with Keita Mori rather arbitrarily thrown in.
